    Mrs Crewe says:

    Guido please stop calling it the bedroom tax. This Labour spin is taking over the airwaves I saw BBC and Sky News do a report on this and all the way through they called it the bedroom tax. If it was a tax it would be universally applied to all, it doesn’t effect me or anyone else not living in public housing or claiming housing benefit. I pay for my own house without any help from the public purse, naturally I can’t afford a spare room and have one room for me and Mr Crewe and another for Crewe Jr. The only I way this is a tax is on my pocket paying for those in social housing to have a better life style than I do.

    Where are Tony Blair's expenses says:

    Sky news this morning – Guy on benefits complaining he wouldn’t be able to have his children to stay if he had to move out of his 3 bedroomed council house, his wife lives elsewhere also on benefits.

    So a tale of Tony Blair’s Britain , a couple have children get divorced and the taxpayer picks up the bill.

    FFS when is this lunacy going to stop.

    Liam Byrne given an easy ride by Sky, refused to answer when questioned on the 878,000 disability claimants who refused to be interviewed, kept wittering on about millionaires tax breaks whilst forgetting to mention that income tax rates for high earners are higher than at any time other than the last 6 months of the Blair/ Brown government

    If you have savings, own a car, own a house, have a job in the private sector be afraid – Ed Balls is coming to get you after 2015.

    Mid way through the next parliament public spending cuts on the scale of Ireland, Spain and Greece will need to be brought in

    Socialism is a severe mental illness says:

    “a couple have children get divorced and the taxpayer picks up the bill.”

    Meanwhile, a family that really need that 3-bedroom council house can’t have it because a selfish anti-social wanker who doesn’t need it is refusing to move out.

    Only the ‘socialist’ Labour Party would choose to side with antisocial scum.

    Tax ? What Tax ? The BBC ALMOST told the truth says:

    In fairness Simon McCoy on BBC News Channel this morning gave “Liam “Baldemort” Byrne who had been expecting the usual BBC syncophantic interview no doubt a surprise and corrected him several times over his, Byrnes’, over-use of the term “Bedroom Tax” at one point telling Byrne that it isn’t a tax though is it ! It’s just a reduction in a benefit which some people think is fair. Slightly “off message” which was rapidly corrected by the BBC upper echelons later

    On the previous page, I posted Gordon was one of the best Chancellor’s this country has ever had. He was right on the economy and if he were still to be in power, we would now be living in a land of milk and honey.

    It had started off with a totally mischievous and speculative Google search: “Gordon Brown was right on the economy” (including inverted commas.)

    I was aghast to find there were actually 2 results which it took 0.35 seconds to locate. One of these was this, which I shamelessly ransacked for my piece:


    … replete with grocer’s apostrophe.

    So there are still people around who think Gordon was marvellous. In a world like that, who needs April Fools’?

    Bullers says:

    If someone is on incapacity benefits they should be seen regularly by their GP, consultant, and the their progress or decline should be sent to the benefits agency, that should give the benefits agency a better idea on the claimants ill health, the claimant would have to sign an acceptance form for doctors to give the information failure to provide the this acceptance of disclosure would automatically end the benefit.

    the tories have let labour have a free ride on this one. they should have stated that social housing is subsidised housing and pointed out what the equivalent would cost in the same road in the private sector and shown how much of a subsidy this is.

    Mind you I think the tories should have given people a year to move before bringing this tax in, so people could move and avoid the tax.

    The reason this is not a great vote winner for labour is because you have individuals who need a bigger house and due to people not moving cant have larger accommodation.

    An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

    Means exactly that. “an Apple” not the equivalent of 20 apples.

    The body finds it impossible to regulate fructose absorption and does not really understand fructose arriving without glucose. This is quite unnatural.

    All the un-absorbed fructose leads to bloating with stomach gasses when it ferments lower down. Then there is the rise in Gout. We are dying from our over “healthy” diets.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
